UMS and MKR partner up to build first hybrid truck for Dakar 2020

In collaboration with UMS, the Czech company MKR has succeeded in developing the first hybrid Dakar truck for the Riwald Dakar Team!

UMS has taken care of the development of the complete battery system. The latest BMS technologies have been used to keep the batteries in the best possible condition. Cooling is also integrated to keep the batteries at the right temperature in extreme environments such as the Dakar rally.
All in all, the latest and best technologies have been applied to this project, to ensure that the truck performs at its best.
